The nursery is officially done! I'd call this "The Big Reveal", but I have shown so many photos along the way, that there's not much left to be surprised by at this point. We got a bookshelf for the room, anchored it to the wall, drilled a hole in the back for the ipod dock, and filled it with books and stuffed animals from books:
My friend Kim made this drawing for me in college, so happy it stuck around!
Tigger and a bunch of books I got a gifts.
Ipod dock and Texas book from my parents (plus a little bookworm from my book-themed shower).
Winnie the Pooh books I've had since I was a kid.
Do boys read "Olivia"? We might have to switch this out for something else if it's a boy.
We plan on the kid reading the entire set by age 2.
The best part about these books is that they were all gifts from friends and family and they all have inscriptions to the baby in them. They will be so fun to look through as we start reading them to the kid.
And voila! I'm sure I'll be tinkering with this until the last minute (I'm already thinking about framing some of my shower invitations, plus we already replaced the ipod dock with a newer one than I have in above the photo).
Once we got the rug in there, it finally felt like a finished room, so here you have it!
Hopefully the baby likes it as much as we do and really likes books. If not, well... I guess it can get a job and fund it's own renovation project. P.S. It's also currently being featured on a baby nursery blog.
